    When connex are spotty riding on the train, my s4 just gives up when it loses connectivity with "Unable to connect to data network, turning off hotspot"

    ... I grow weary of having to manually reconnect it every time this happens. It there a way to make it just keep trying?

    Forever, until you turn it off manually? You don't want that. Every time it tries is a waste of battery. If you ride for half an hour and the phone keeps trying to reconnect every 10 seconds, you'll get home with a dead battery. If it can't re-establish connection in a few tries, it's not going to for a while. You should have checked which carrier has solid coverage on your ride before choosing the one you have.

    (The train has electrical outlets, battery is not an issue ) Is there a way to do make it keep retrying? The dead spots do not last that long while the train is moving, so it doesn't take it a half an hour to reconnect. It just gives up too soon
